  • A blazing start to the third quarter turned a subpar first half into a distant memory for the North Medford boys basketball team on Friday.
    Oshea Bailey dropped in 12 of his 14 points in the second half to help the ninth-ranked Black Tornado overcome a seven-point halftime deficit and take down North Salem, 61-47, at North Medford High.

    Bailey also had seven rebounds and three assists. He registered six points, three boards and a pair of assists during the third quarter, when North Medford outscored the Vikings, 22-7.
    "We were just a different basketball team (in second half)," said Plankenhorn. "We were quicker and shared the ball a lot more."
    "They're playing pretty good basketball for the start of the campaign," added Plankenhorn, whose team is 3-0.
    Brandon DeBerry tallied six of his 10 points in the second quarter to keep the Black Tornado within striking distance.
    North Medford's Garrett Knox chipped in 12 points, Tristen Holmes scored nine and Christian Reyes provided a spark off the bench with six points.
